Prostate biopsy for diagnostic of prostate tuberculosis E. Kulchavenya, E. Brizhatyuk, D. KholtobinNovosibirsk, Russia, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.orgMaterial and Methods. 93 patients suspicious on prostateTB were enrolled in study. All underwent ultrasound guidedcore prostate biopsy with local anaesthesia. Straws wereinvestigated by PCR, pathomorphology and culture.Results: Common complaints were pain (96.8%), dysuria(79.6%); laboratory findings –leucospermia (73.1%),haemospermia (51.6%). 37.6% had TB history, 34.4% hadactive TB of another localization, mostly – pulmonary.Results of PCR: HPV – 10.7%, Ureaplasma – 2.2%.Mycobacteria culture was positive in 6.9%.Pathomorphologically in 94.6% inflammation was found, in65.6% – fibrosis, in 9.7% - intraprostatic neoplasia, in 5.4% -cancer, in 24.7% - TB.Conclusion: The diagnosis of prostate TB is a very difficulttask, because clinical features and laboratory signs are non-specific, alike chronic prostatitis. Absolutely pathognomonicsymptom is a cavern on urethrogram, but caverns mean late-diagnosed complicated form, cavernous prostate TB can’t becured neither chemotherapy nor by surgery. Prostate TB inearly infiltrative non-cavernous stage may be diagnosed byPCR, culture or pathomorphology. Possibility of thesemethods alone is poor, it is necessary to use its in combination.
